Through a series of articles, I detail the history of the video game industry in regards to specific companies, consoles, and pieces of hardware.
In this section I provide in depth reviews of game consoles, past and present, from my own collection. Included are details about the consoles' history, specs, and hi-resolution pictures.
A lot of first- and third-party hardware and software items are released that don't get the recognition that they deserve. In this section, I highlight some of the best.
Everyone who likes to play, collect, or otherwise has a love for video games has their two cents. I have a pocket full of pennies.
I have recently created a YouTube channel. Please Subscribe to my channel and comment on my videos if you would like to see continued support for the channel!
Learn about me, my collection, how I got started colleting, and where I can see my collection going in the future. I also detail why I decided to make this site, and provide a means for you to contact me.
